Editor’s Note: Rachel Ozer is originally from Moraga, CA and she will play forward for the blue-and-white. She is competing in honor of The Ramah Camping Movement. The following is Rachel’s reflection on what representing Israel means to her and includes an explanation of why she has chosen to support The Ramah Movement in conjunction with the Israel Lacrosse Tzedakah Program. Follow this link to support Rachel, The Ramah Movement, and Israel Lacrosse.
“I’m beyond excited for this opportunity to learn more about my homeland and help grow the sport of lacrosse in our country. Personally, it means that my family will be able to see me represent Israel. I’m also excited to play a role in bringing international attention to the sport, in order to help lacrosse ultimately become an Olympic sport.
I will be competing in honor of the Ramah Camping Movement, which builds summer camps and Israel programs that inspire commitment to and engagement in Jewish life, and develop the next generation of Jewish professional leaders. I know firsthand how well Ramah teaches kids compassion, empathy and social justice, while encouraging a greater connection to Israel and Judaism.” – RO

Everything Israel Lacrosse does is 100% accomplished through fundraising. We cannot grow the game of lacrosse, help Israel’s youth develop active lifestyles and leadership skills, and perform competitively on the international stage without your help.
